Making A Gypsy Jazz Guitar Pick!
For those who can't bring themselves to fork out 15 bucks or more for a handmade Wegen pick, here's a vid showing how you can make your very own Gypsy jazz guitar pick.
In true Gypsy jazz guitar tradition, the base material looks to be at least 3mm thick! Acetal plastic was used for the pick in this video, but for some downhome Gypsy authenticity, beef or hambone could also be used if you're so inclined.
Respiratory masks are a must when making your own custom guitar picks!
